Hi, friends!

Every month I’ll be doing monthly reflections. On my last blog, I made weekly “Friday Five” posts, but it was pretty repetitive week by week, so I’m gonna do a post for the entire month. Monthly reflections will be similar to life updates, things I’ve learned and want to remember.

Topics will range from:


Daily Life/Spotted


A Life She Loved


On the Internet

and many more!

A NEUROENVIRONMENTAL CONNECTION | In a recent study done by Harvard Medical School investigators at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, developed an approach to systematically and simultaneously evaluate the effects of hundreds of environmental factors on the development of neurological diseases.

BLESS YOU | Why sneeze, when you can “sternutate.” Yes, that’s the medical terminology for a sneeze. 

IT’S SPICY! | You know when you eat something spicy like a spicy soup, and your nose starts running and then you’re sniffling? The medical terminology for that is “Gustatory Rhinitis.”

I want to start a blog for NINETYFOUR87. As launch date approaches, I want to start working on the marketing aspect and growing the NINETYFOUR87 brand. The sustainable, ethical and transparency approach is very important to me and I want that information available for NINETYFOUR87 customers. I want there to be a trust between me and customers and customers should know what they’re buying into and supporting. I also want to share more behind the scenes stuff on that blog as well. If you have a few minutes, please fill in this quick NINETYFOUR87 Blog survey in! Thank you so much!

See and Listen

OZARK | At first, I didn’t like this series and was going to give up, but after a few episodes, I was totally hooked! I can’t wait until season 3 and see what happens to Byrde family.

 DESIGNATED SURVIVOR | LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!! I am a huge Kiefer Sutherland fan (my entire family is too) so this was a no brainer for me! I was hooked to this series from the very beginning and finished it in less than 3 days! (LOL). If only world leaders had the same intellect, personality and way of thinking like Tom Kirkman, oh man this world would be a better place! Oh, and Adan Canto (who plays Aaron Shore) is quite a cutie!

YOU | DAMN! This series was creepy AF! It’s good and very entertaining (I love Shay Mitchell, but hated her character), but it definitely makes you question relationships and love. I would totally recommend this show, but be warned that certain parts will creep you out.

DYNASTY | I love this series reboot! I love it when a girl is independent and strong and does not give a f*ck and does whatever she wants, that’s why I love Elizabeth Gillies who plays Fallon Carrington. This series reboots as it all – romance, bromance, drama and oh-my-god fashion envy looks!

VINCE CARTER PODCAST | I mean it’s no brainer that I LOVE Vince Carter. When I was a little girl, all the girls had a crush on Uncle Jesse (Full House) or Aaron Carter. Me? Well, I had a crush on Vince Carter since 1998 (yup, since 1998)…. I love how dedicated he is to himself and to the sport and how he is a role model for the younger generation. I’ve been subscribed to his Ringer podcast since he, Baze and Annie launched it a few months ago. If you’re a basketball fan, this is a must hear!
